Machine learning often times makes people uneasy. It evokes visions of robots becoming more and more like humans every day, and eventually doing our jobs better than we can. In reality, machine learning has made its way into the workplace with a much different impact. Humans are more efficient and are able to do their jobs better than ever before. Machine learning, when applied to sales and marketing, didn’t eliminate the need for sales people and marketers, in fact the results are quite the contrary. Using machine learning and predictive analytics, sales and marketing professionals constantly take data driven approaches to their jobs, helping them achieve their goals, as well as earn seats at the decision-making table. Therefore, the time has come for machine learning for recruiting.
